What’s Vitamin C, Anyway?

Sure, you can get your daily dose from a cup of orange juice, but when applied topically—in a stabilized form—vitamin C has loads of skin benefits. “Vitamin C is an antioxidant that protects the skin from free radical damage that occurs from exposure to UV, pollution, and other environmental stressors,” board-certified dermatologist Dr. Marisa Garshick tells Marie Claire. “It helps brighten the skin, it helps improve hyperpigmentation, it helps support and boost collagen production, and it’s especially great when paired with sunscreen to provide extra protection against UV radiation.”
